Player Outlook
Christian Bethancourt worked as Tampa Bay's 1A option behind the plate in 2023, but he was waived in the offseason after he posted a .225/.254/.381 slash line in 104 games. He had decent power with 11 homers and was solid behind the plate but had a 27.4 percent strikeout rate and 4.0 percent walk rate. The veteran backstop latched on with the Marlins and will provide a veteran presence alongside Nick Fortes. Bethancourt is a capable big leaguers but is unlikely to have much fantasy utility.

  • Cubs' Christian Bethancourt: Inks minors deal with Cubs

    Bethancourt signed a minor-league contract with the Cubs on Friday. Bethancourt was cut by Miami on June 27 after he slashed just .159/.198/.268 across 88 plate appearances. The 32-year-old will now attempt to get back on track with Triple-A Iowa, but it would likely take a drastic turnaround for the Cubs to consider adding Bethancourt to their big-league roster.

  • Christian Bethancourt: Released by Miami

    The Marlins released Bethancourt on June 27. Bethancourt had been outrighted off the 40-man roster after clearing waivers but has now been cut loose. The owner of a career .226/.257/.355 batting line over parts of eight seasons, Bethancourt might have to settle for a minor-league contract with his new organization.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Sent outright to Triple-A

    The Marlins outrighted Bethancourt to Triple-A Jacksonville on Wednesday. Bethancourt cleared waivers after exiting the Marlins' 40-man roster a week ago. The catcher can elect free agency if he wants, and it's not yet clear whether he'll take that option or accept the outright assignment.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Loses roster spot

    Bethancourt was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Thursday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Bethancourt has served as Miami's backup catcher this season, but he has struggled to a .466 OPS across 88 plate appearances. Ali Sanchez is expected to take over as the new second catcher on the depth chart behind Nick Fortes.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Pops second homer

    Bethancourt went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Tuesday's extra-inning win over the Cardinals. The veteran catcher launched a solo shot off Lance Lynn in the sixth inning, Bethancourt's second homer of the season. The hits were his first since May 27, and the 32-year-old has offered little at the plate as the backup to Nick Fortes, slashing a woeful .159/.198/.268 on the year in 88 plate appearances.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Back with team

    Bethancourt was reinstated from the bereavement list Tuesday. As planned, Bethancourt rejoins the Marlins after a three-game absence. Jhonny Pereda will be sent back to Triple-A Jacksonville. Bethancourt is slashing .162/.208/.250 while splitting catching duties with Nick Fortes.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Placed on bereavement list

    The Marlins placed Bethancourt on the bereavement list Saturday. Bethancourt will be away from the team for three games as he tends to more important matters. Jhonny Pereda was recalled from Triple-A Jacksonville in a corresponding move and will likely split time with Nick Fortes behind the plate while Bethancourt is out.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Not starting Sunday

    Bethancourt is not in the starting lineup for Sunday's series finale against Arizona. Bethancourt started behind home plate in Saturday's 3-2 loss to Arizona, going 1-for-3 with two strikeouts. Nick Fortes will serve as the catcher Sunday and bat ninth against Diamondbacks left-hander Blake Walston.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Belts first homer of season

    Bethancourt went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Mets. The catcher took Jake Diekman deep in the seventh inning, bringing the Marlins to within a run at 4-3, but it was as close as they got. Bethancourt has offered little at the plate this season -- Sunday's homer was his first of 2024, and he's slashing .143/.186/.232 in 60 plate appearances as the backup to Nick Fortes.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Sitting again Wednesday

    Bethancourt is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers. Bethancourt will sit for the second day in a row while Nick Fortes receives another turn behind the plate. Neither Bethancourt (.349 OPS) nor Fortes (.336 OPS) has been productive at the plate this season and both typically bat near the bottom of the order when included in the lineup, making it difficult to extract any fantasy value from the Marlins' catching situation.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Starts up rehab assignment

    Bethancourt (illness) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Jacksonville on Friday and went 3-for-13 with a double and a stolen base across his first three games with the affiliate. Bethancourt was placed on the 10-day IL on April 15 after coming down with a viral illness, but his ability to return to game action a few days later suggests that he's tracking toward a minimum-length stay on the shelf. Once Bethancourt is activated, he'll likely be part of a timeshare with Nick Fortes behind the plate.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Placed on 10-day IL

    The Marlins placed Bethancourt on the 10-day injured list Monday due to a viral illness, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Bethancourt missed Sunday's game against Atlanta due to the illness, and his placement on the IL suggests the Marlins weren't counting on him being available for their three-game series with the Giants to begin the week. Provided he's able to resume working out in the next few days, Bethancourt could be ready to return from the IL when first eligible April 24. In a corresponding move, the Marlins selected Jhonny Pereda's contract from Triple-A Jacksonville on Monday. Pereda will likely serve as the No. 2 catcher behind Nick Fortes while Bethancourt recovers from his illness.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Sitting Saturday

    Bethancourt isn't in the Marlins' lineup Saturday against the Cardinals. Bethancourt went 0-for-3 in Thursday's series opener and remains hitless through 13 plate appearances to begin the season. Nick Fortes will get the nod behind the dish instead and bat ninth.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Behind plate Friday

    Bethancourt is starting at catcher and batting ninth in Friday's game versus the Pirates, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. Nick Fortes started at catcher on Opening Day, but it will be Bethancourt behind the dish Friday with A.J. Puk on the mound. It will likely be a fairly even split in playing time this season between the two, limiting the already low fantasy upside of each.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Quiet spring at plate

    Bethancourt went 0-for-3 in Friday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals. The veteran catcher is expected to split work behind the plate with Nick Fortes this season for the Marlins, but Bethancourt has done little in camp to attract attention from fantasy GMs. He's batting .217 (5-for-23) through 10 games with a 1:7 BB:K, and a double stands as his only extra-base hit. Bethancourt has slugged exactly 11 homers each of the last two seasons, but his .239/.268/.395 slash line offers little appeal even as an endgame dart for those not wanting to invest heavily at catcher.

  • Marlins' Christian Bethancourt: Dealt to Miami

    Bethancourt was acquired by the Marlins from the Guardians on Sunday for cash considerations, Daniel Alvarez-Montes of ElExtraBase.com reports. The 32-year-old was claimed off waivers by Cleveland in early November, but he's now being offloaded following the signing of Austin Hedges. Nick Fortes had a .562 OPS in 108 games for Miami last season and is the only other catcher currently on the big-league roster, which should give Bethancourt a decent path to playing time in 2024.

  • Guardians' Christian Bethancourt: Catches on with Cleveland

    The Guardians claimed Bethancourt off waivers from the Rays on Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Bethancourt spent a large portion of the 2023 season as the Rays' No. 1 catcher and put up decent counting statistics over his 332 plate appearances (11 home runs, 49 runs, 33 RBI and one stolen base), but an ugly .225/.254/.381 slash line (74 wRC+) made his less useful at the plate from a real-life standpoint. Still, the 32-year-old graded out as a capable defender behind the dish and wasn't a complete zero with the bat, so he should at least make for a dependable backup option and short-side platoon mate in Cleveland for No. 1 backstop Bo Naylor.

  • Rays' Christian Bethancourt: Placed on waivers

    The Rays placed Bethancourt on outright waivers Saturday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Bethancourt will join five teammates on the waiver wire in an effort from the Rays to clear space on the 40-man roster. The 32-year-old backstop slashed .225/.254/.381 across 332 plate appearances in 2023 and could be picked up by another team in search of a backup catcher.

  • Rays' Christian Bethancourt: Out of lineup again Wednesday

    Bethancourt is not in the lineup Wednesday for Game 2 of the AL Wild Card Series against the Rangers. Bethancourt also began Game 1 on the bench, although he did enter at catcher late after Rene Pinto was lifted for a pinch hitter. The Rays began leaning toward Pinto over Bethancourt behind the plate in September and that has carried over into the playoffs.

  • Rays' Christian Bethancourt: Remains on bench

    Bethancourt will sit for the second straight game Saturday against the Mariners, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Bethancourt has hit just .240/.264/.380 over the last month, striking out 21 times to go with just two walks. Rene Pinto will get another start behind the plate.
